Mango Portswood

welcome to Mango in Portswood
–one of three Mango Bar & Restaurants in Southampton, this is the original & the home of Thai Tapas–

Set across two floors and four rooms of a characterful Victorian building, our original Mango captures the spirit of northern Thailand’s capital Chiang Mai. With candle-lit tables, exotic Asian trinkets, and vast glossy murals, soak up the bohemian vibes, eclectic charm, and laid-back smiles.

We’ve got cosy tables for romantic dinners, sharing tables for friends catching up, as well as larger areas available for parties and private functions. And, come Summertime, our outside tables are the perfect spot for enjoying a glass of wine and snacking on some small plates.

Whatever your occasion, we have a unique selection of tables and party spaces over four themed rooms.

Both the upstairs and downstairs floors are available to book privately, and we can put you in touch or organise completely; DJs, live bands, magicians, and photographers, to make your event one your guests won’t forget.

The front room, with its floor to ceiling windows, and beach bar tables outside has proven perfect for afternoon through to evening functions.

Call us a cheap date, but we’re probably a lot less to hire for functions than you’d think, so if you’d like to know more about booking your special event with us, get in touch here!

a bit of portswood history

When we moved into Rigby house back in 2006, we replaced a Hoover Shop, and across from us (where La Baronia is now) was a fireplace store. Back then we were one of two restaurants in Portswood, the only other being a certain fast food pizza place. It’s changed a lot since, and now you’ll find an array of coffee shops, places to eat, fruit & veg stalls and little charity shops to pop in and out of… We just love how Portswood has grown! When you’re finished browsing the high street, we’re only a five minute walk, and then you can sit back, relax, and enjoy a drink and some tapas into the evening with us.
